Two Boeing airplanes have fallen out of the air and crashed in the past six months. On the surface, this is a technical failure. But the real story is about a company's desire to beat their rival.

  • couldnt of boeing just... made the lading gear bigger.... 😐

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="149">2:29</a> umm stall much? Edit: oh the stall was a feature 😂

  • Obviously it's Boeing's fault and they should be held responsible, but it also shows why planes can't be fully autonomous and how pilots need to have additional training for extreme situations, which in recent years there is less and less of.

  • When the tail is half the size of the plane and people don't realize it, thats when you know theres a pandemic.

  • Boeing is greedy. That's why I never fly with Boeing. Airbus is the best.

  • Lemme guess.. Money?

  • I only fly in 787-8 or 787-9 jal/ana.

  • var mcas2=function(){ putNoseDown(20); }; if(nosePitch>50){ mcas2(); }

  • Nice video. A good summary of the accidents

  • FAA and Boeing are one and the same.

  • CHINA!

  • America is over

  • The irony being had they gone with their first choice of new engine, it wouldn't have happened. But they dropped that engine because it had been a bad choice for Airbus. Sad.

  • This shows money can't buy you happiness. If you forget about your passion and go after money through competition, you are on the wrong side.

  • The fact that this video got 10 million views... 737 MAX: "Am I a joke to you?"

  • Economic Liberalism Less regulation, more money and less safety

  • No one likes Boeing now

  • If they think the plane is safe, the CEO of Boeing should fly on it. Would he really call it safe if he was forced to fly on it?

  • Boeing just wants to be better than airbus but they failed, due to the problems with the engines they should had put the engine a little lower the exact same height as the wing. Airbus cares about safety of their passengers to make their brand new neo, like EA, they don’t care about their customers all they want is money they care about their customers before but right now they don’t. Boeing needs to fix their max 8s in order to achieve their goal.

  • I searched up a a320.... still tho 737 is better so not upset

    • @BrantheBroken Yea the 737 had some flaws (AHEM 737 MAX) but still a pretty good plane nonetheless

    • @That1Russian Nope. 60 year old design repeatedly stretched and patched from 100/200 to Classic, NG, now Max. Always trying everything to retain it's original grandfathered certification to remain competitive. The last one rushed so bad by management it crashed, twice. And what rushed it? Competition from the A320NEO, The ease and cost effectiveness of upgrading the A32x family without major redesign or pilot training. Something Boeing failed to replicate with MCAS on the 737. And even before the NEO, the A32x came along in the 1980s and completely revolutionized cockpit design, commonality, efficiency etc. So much so it successfully competed with 737 to the point of equaling it in market share. A come from behind win. When Boeing comes with a clean sheet 737 replacement, then I'll be impressed. Until then the 737 is just a resto-modded old hotrod on it's last iteration. Btw, I love the 737, but these are facts.

    • BrantheBroken yes

    • Nope

  • I love airbus

    • Matteo Domenico airbus has better cockpit , better flight control , less crashes and. comfortable cockpit I have flew both Boeing 737 and airbus a320

    • But Boeing is better

  • A320 is the best

  • Perhaps that software was designed by an Indian contractor since Boeing has been cheap and greedy

    • BrantheBroken I’m not blaming Indian code cruncher nor saying they’re ‘low level’, you have a good day.

    • Boeing designed it, Rockwell Collins built it, Boeing tested it, accepted it, FAA approved it, then Boeing changed it and told no one. Then integrated it into the larger flight management system without redundancy and other cost gutting. But go ahead and blame some low level Indian code cruncher Boeing mysteriously hasn't scapegoated to save itself. Xenophobia never needs facts.

  • I don’t have too much faith in the 737MAX

  • Boeing: We made a max and it’s going to be better then the a320 Neo Boeing 737 Max 8: I’m going to ruin this mans whole career

  • Remember those beautiful times where Airbus was happy Boeing was loosing costumers because of the MAX scandal and now no one can fly because of the *_surivanoroc_* and both are loosing clients?

  • Why couldn't they just raise the wheels

  • Greed is expensive

  • Because theyre cutting corners to raise profit, end of video

  • I legit thought you said Ryanair when you said Lion air. If it was a Ryanair that crashed, I wouldn’t be surprised.

  • Unbridled greed

  • Best explanation so far. Thank you !

  • There could be a solution to the Boeing 737 being close to the ground. They could simply increase the height of the landing gear the rear one and it would raise the aircraft above the ground and prevent so many casualties??

  • Atleast the Boeing 747-8i is safe

  • They are doing a comeback don't worry 😂

  • It does not matter. The Covid 19 makes sure the 737 Max will never fly again!

  • It's the same with car cruise options. When there is manual input, no matter what, always make that the control instead of an automatic device. Don't make the only way to turn it off to be a button somewhere else.

  • It's all because of money

  • i always use qatar airways

  • d

  • “Everything is below money! Human lives don’t matter! MONEY MATTERS!!!!”

    • Our profile pictures are so similar omg

  • Person 1: Make bigger gear Person 2: Put the plane IN the wing Boeing: *hires person 2*

    • They started becoming greedy when they bought MC Douglas

  • If Boeing couldn't find the 737 MAX problems, then the 737 MAXs should be retired

  • Ohhh MCAS how you failed us

  • y'all in the comments need to calm tf down, just because 1 boeing plane has a tendency to crash, doesn't mean they all do

  • The 6th time i watching this video. Just me? OK

  • Thank you VOX

  • Boeing should make longer landing gear to put that bigger engine

  • Boeing 737 MAX is a flying casket itself. It should never, ever, fly again.

  • Boeing =💩, not care about the passengers, only about the money, this is the way of management of Boeing.

  • Good job Boeing 😡😡😡

  • I've only been on one plane. It was a Boeing 737 in 2003 and I don't recall the flight at all. And before you say "Well, you'd have to at least been on two" This was an emigration. I was moving from my home town of Joliet, IL to Sunderland, in the UK. I was 2 years old.

  • The 737 max case will end like the dc-10, will be a "gentlemen agree", boeing will re-design the defectos of the plane, the accidents will be overcome and the plane will be flying for decades.

  • Why cant they just make the landing gears longer

  • f

  • An a320 just crashed yesterday, 22 may

  • I've been on a Ethiopian Airlines 737, but not MAX.

  • Lion air terkenal banget

  • Guys, Is there an video on mh17 by vox

  • my cousins father died on that day

  • There were so many errors in the software of the plane. That's way it never flew again. When they addressed one issue, a new one would pop up, address the new one, and another and another and another. The Mcas was not disclosed, so nobody knew how to turn it off, provided, that the system was operating correctly, but it wasn't. The computer that was controlling the Mcas, was feeding it with corrupted inaccurate data. Total dogs breakfast in other words. A product of Boeings brave new philosophy, PROFIT OVER EVERYTHING.🤢🤢🤢🤢🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

  • Just place a button, instead of trying to put a complex way for disabling the MCAT software

  • Anybody know if these planes are still grounded? Or are they back in service now?

    • depends what country your in. Its probably still grounded in the US, but if you go to Russia for a example its probably not grounded.

  • Maneuvering Characteristics Augomentation System or MIGHT CRASH ANY SECOND known as MCAS

  • Don't we just love capitalism

  • *mCaS iS tOtAlLy SaFe* - Boeing CEO are you sure?

  • M-Crash

  • Heres why I like airbus planes: 1. A320 - crashed a little before 2. A330 - i think it crashed like once 3. A340 - it did crash a little 4. A350 - never crashed 5. A380 - no crashes. At all Boeing: 1. B737 - crash crash crash 2. B777 - crashed 3. B787 - almost crashed 4. B747 - c- c- crash. 5. B737 Max -*get out.*

    • Also before other people criticise you the Max has only crashed twice. A320/A330 have crashed more and killed more than 2 737-Max’s but I get what you’re trying to say. In this day and age a plane shouldn’t crash twice within 6 months because of a design flaw

  • Airbus4Life

  • The MCAS system was flawed. However, neither crew followed procedures to properly disable it. MCAS was designed to maintain the handling characteristics of the 737 without requiring a new and expensive type rating. Inexcusable all around. Boeing moved the engines up, but it also extended the length of the landing gear, so some of the arguments here are specious.

    • Actually the Ethiopian pilots did. They turned off stab trim but had to turn it back on because they couldn’t turn the wheel manually

  • <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="272">4:32</a> reason mcas sensor go up so go down

  • It seems to me that Boeing did not let pilots know about MCAS. Why did they tell pilots? I shall never fly Boeing again!

    • They did tell the pilots, like you said later in your comment

  • Well the Coronavirus has distracted everybody from the 737 Max fiasco.

  • Why didn't they use the simple fix that engineers of the f100 did

  • boeing: the engine used to not fit but we shoved it in there and it actually worked

  • Boeing, why not just make the landing gear higher

    • Because then the wheels would hit each other when retracted

  • Could Boeing make the 737 max taller?

  • THIS IS VOX...THE MOST PROPAGANDIST WEBSITE ON THE NET.....DONT BELIEVE A WORD THEY SAY!!! THEY ARE LIBERAL NUTCASES!!!

    • I can believe what they say because everything else said by the experts matches

    • Yes, that is very right Winged

    • @Jase Nantes no they are the most propagandist website on the internet.....thats right

    • I don’t like Vox, but you have it all wrong..

  • F

  • This makes me not want to fly on Boeing as much, to see they are a selfish, the fact that the RUSHED this plane through certification, just to compete with their competitor, Airbus. Vox, might I ask you to make one about the 2 Qantas A330 incidents? (FL72)

    • Yeah, but the plane doesn’t have to crash just for him to make a video out of it, and nobody had to have died.

    • You mean the ones where nobody died and the 2nd plane didn’t even dive it just had same error messages and the crew turned off the ADIRU before anything happened
